Well I did it! I made my first Thanksgiving dinner! Truth be told I wasn't very nervous because my Mom was there in case I had any questions. But everything turned out fabulously and was quite delicious (if I do say so myself).
Of course, in the midst of delicious food and the clatter of silverware, I couldn't help but look around and feel so incredibly thankful. It was just a small gathering, hubby, my parents, and myself. Still, I was surrounded by three people who have had a profound impact on my life.
My parents continue to inspire me with their wisdom, faith and generosity. I hope I am half as amazing as they are when I have my own children.
And my husband. He inspires me daily with his kind heart and genuine spirit. It is such a gift to be married to such an amazing, faith-filled man. How did I get so lucky?
I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating with your loved ones. It is a beautiful life that God gives us and we have so much to be thankful for.
